    Can't find a keyword hierarchy option

    It's okay - I've finally found it. :rolleyes: Just in case the thread comes up for anyone else wanting to know - simply left-click on the magnifying glass. :happy:

    Can't find a keyword hierarchy option

    Hi all! I recall recently selecting a keyword option so that everything within a keyword hierarchy (ie, all the sub-levels) shows when searching the keyword list - not just the keywords from the search. It's been really handy whilst organising my hierarchies better. However, I'd like to...

    Develop module Query over preset storage change

    All worked great - I think from now on I'll import presets by just putting the unzipped folder into the lightroom settings/settings folder, rather than using the LR system. Keeps them in neat folders and easier for me to see what I have and haven't backed up to external drives too. Thanks!

    Develop module Query over preset storage change

    Hi John Thanks so much for your time. The link was really interesting. Personally, I hope that this behaviour changes in a future version, or that there are more options offered. I will follow your instructions to move the presets and message back if I have any challenges. Thanks again.

    Develop module Query over preset storage change

    Hi all! In Lightroom preferences I have always had it set as 'store presets with this catalog'. I have quite a few develop presets - these are all stored in separate folders inside 'lightroom settings/settings'. Through the years I've done the various conversions to the latest updates and these...

    Library module Getting old keywords to be suggested in a new catalog

    One more query whilst I'm here... Is there any way to make the cursor in the facial recognition textbox automatically active after manually drawing a box around a face LR didn't spot? Whenever I draw a box, I automatically start typing the name - but as it isn't active I end up activating the...

    Library module Getting old keywords to be suggested in a new catalog

    I have deleted the Helper file (after re-backing-up!!) and it has worked perfectly. My suggestions have all reappeared. It was driving me crazy, as if I misremembered a keyword (maybe whether plural or not) then I was creating almost duplicates without searching each time. You may have saved...

    Library module Getting old keywords to be suggested in a new catalog

    Thanks for that! Yes, the person keywords are classed as 'person' ones. I will close down and try deleting the helper file and let you know :)

    Library module Getting old keywords to be suggested in a new catalog

    Hi all! After some major issues with my catalog for the first time in over a decade, which took weeks to resolve (even Adobe couldn't figure it out - but eventually I found a single corrupt photo using GoodSync - which was awesome!). By that time I had used a backup catalog, then created a new...

    Develop module What is your "ideal" DEVELOP workflow?

    I have no idea if my workflow is like anyone elses - it's just what I've developed over the past 10 years that works for me! I always shoots raw + jpg, so I start simply with Windows Explorer - in the folder with all images I group the jpgs together and am pretty harsh at deleting. I view each...

    Recently Corrupted Catalog

    Hi all! Thanks so much for taking the time to reply. Sorry for my delay - I've been in zoom meetings back to back. As I'd checked with my secondary catalogue and this is working okay, I thought this wouldn't be necessary to create a new catalogue to experiment with. Is that the case, or...

    Recently Corrupted Catalog

    Hi! I've not had any issues with computer at all recently like that. I do have some backups, but only want to try this once I've examined other options. My big concern is that Lightroom did not seem to recognise any issue or corruption with the catalogue even once the crashing started...

    Recently Corrupted Catalog

    Hi Rob! Thanks for getting back to me. I've had far larger catalogues without issue. The previews file is large, but I believe I can just delete it and it shouldn't impact on the catalogue at all. I exit Lightroom in this way every week, so the catalogue should be fully checked for integrity...

    Recently Corrupted Catalog

    Hi all! I have used LR for many years, usually on a daily basis. Some professional work, but also a lot for just personal use. I maintain it well, have it set to remind me about optimise/back-up every shut down, which I do probably once a week or so. A couple of days ago it suddenly crashed...

    Applying Metadata without Exporting & Auto Keywords

    Thanks - those two posts really help. Think I have it all. I didn't know I could have a different view of keywords, so that's handy. I was also originally assuming that inherited keywords could become assigned keywords. As there isn't some toggle option to make this happen, I think I'll just...
